Samsung sold one million Galaxy Fold units
« on: December 13, 2019, 07:56:43 AM »


If the early foldable devices are a test run to see how the public responds to them, it would appear that sales of the Samsung Galaxy Fold show that there is substantial consumer interest in foldables. Today, during an event held in Berlin, Samsung Electronics President Young Sohn said that the first foldable phone from a major manufacturer has sold one million units so far. Considering the $1,980 price tag and the delay in launching the device caused by several issues that Samsung needed to address, this figure would indicate that there is a strong interest in the foldable form factor. Based on Sohn's comment, sales of the Galaxy Fold have brought the company close to $2 billion in revenue since September.


Originally set to launch in several markets on April 26th, Samsung put the kibosh on the launch after several influencers discovered issues with their review units. Several peeled off a plastic film that covered the large internal display despite warnings from Samsung that this action could damage the device. Others complained that debris was able to enter the internal screen and create a bulge through openings in the hinge. And some units just stopped working altogether. Samsung Electronics CEO DJ Koh admitted that the company tried to release the device before it was ready. Pre-orders collected by some U.S. carriers, Best Buy and Samsung were canceled.
